Lingonberry, low bush cranberry, or Vaccinium vitis-idaea is a short evergreen shrub in the heath family that bears edible fruit, native to boreal forest and Arctic tundra throughout the Northern Hemisphere from Eurasia to North America.

The berries are tastier once they have gone through the first frost. The berries stay on the plant even in winter, and can still be eaten in the spring.
Traditional Use
In the past, the Inupiaq people would collect the berries in great quantities. They would be eaten mixed with meat, fats, fish eggs, fish, or blubber. Cranberry juice is good for kidney problems, and you can make a tea from the leaves that is good for a cough.

Traditionally, the Inupiaq used to keep the berries over winter by storing them in long, shallow birchbark baskets with tight lids in an underground pit or in a tree. source
